Last Friday, members of Texas Students for Life and various others took part in a protest against a birth control rally that the University Democrats and Planned Parenthood were holding on the UT campus. Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America was the keynote speaker for the event.

According to several numbers I have seen, the pro-birth control rally had about 160 Planned Parenthood supporters, while those who protested with TSFL against Planned Parenthood numbered around 60.

While our presence at the rally was obviously not received very well by those who were putting it on, it gave me so much hope to see all the pro-lifers that showed up to protest with us on a Friday afternoon in the cold and drizzle. I think it really shows the other side that we are not afraid to rally from adversity for a cause we so ardently believe in and defend.
